Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick Try Viral Footloose Dance Trend: 'Figured We'd Give it a Spin'

Nearly 40 years after cutting loose in 1984's Footloose, Kevin Bacon still has the moves!

In a video shared by Bacon to his Instagram account on Tuesday, the 62-year-old actor — with the help of his wife, Kyra Sedgwick — tried out the popular "Footloose Drop," a TikTok trend that has reached millions of views on social media.

Set to the film's title track by Kenny Loggins, the trend features one person holding another by their arm and leg before they drop to the beat.

"I don't remember this being part of the original #Footloose choreography," Bacon wrote in the caption to his post, "but figured we'd give it a spin."

The move may have been new to Bacon, but he and Sedgwick, 54, were able to accomplish it with ease, even high-fiving one another after they finished.

They were cheered on in the comments section by many of their famous friends. Daughter daughter Sosie, 30, even showed her support to her mom and dad.

Bacon and Sedgwick have been married since 1988. In addition to Sosie,, the couple are also parents to son Travis, 33.

In 2020, Bacon opened up to PEOPLE about what makes his relationship so special. "Kyra and I believe in each other as actors, as directors and as talent. She's never been anything other than supportive of me," he said. "She doesn't have a competitive bone in her body when it comes to me. She takes my successes as hers. I'm the same way."

At the time, he also revealed they had spent the past few months quarantining together at home getting used to their new routine.

"We cook, we clean, we decide what we're having for the next meal, and then we cook it, clean it and decide what we're having for the next meal," he said with a laugh.

But there's no one he'd rather be stuck with. "Her partnership is invaluable," said Bacon. "I found someone I was meant to be with."

Sedgwick also opened up about their quarantine together in an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! back in January 2021. The Closer star even revealed that she enlisted her husband to give her an at-home bikini wax.

"It became clear at one point to me, to both of us, that I needed a bikini line wax," the actress recalled. "Part of me was like, 'How hard could it be?' You know, I've watched these amazing ladies do it all these years, and like, I've always really appreciated them and appreciated their attention to detail, but I didn't really think it would be that hard."

"Kevin, is like, incredibly handy. Like he's really good with a lot of things… So we both figured, 'How hard could it be?'" she added.

Sedgwick did some online research and purchased the "best wax kit." However, the task proved to be much harder than they anticipated. "I'm not saying it was a disaster, but the fact that we did not have to go to the emergency room was just an absolute miracle," the Call Your Mother star said of the "agonizing" experience.

"I mean there were moments where I was like, 'I thought you knew how to do this! My god, what are you doing? That's such a huge piece!'" she continued. "And he was like, 'I didn't say I knew how to do this. You said I knew how to do this!' And I was like, 'But you're good at everything!' And he was like, 'Well, I'm not good at this!'"

Host Jimmy Kimmel then joked, "So you found the one think Kevin's not good at."

"I did," Sedgwick replied with a laugh.

Having been married for over three decades, Sedgwick told Kimmel "the secret to a happy marriage is that you don't spend 24/7 together."

"But the amazing thing is, and a surprise even to me, that like after 32 years, he always wakes up before I do in the morning and I come downstairs during this COVID time and I'm like, 'How'd you sleep? How's your morning been so far?' And I really care. I really want to know," she said.
